DULUTH, MN — School may be out for the summer, but middle school students in the Twin Ports are continuing to learn.
During a two-day overnight training at the college of St. Scholastica this week, students going into middle school were able to partake in a program, teaching them how to be leaders in the community.
Students took part in leadership sessions, got advice from guest speakers, and set goals for themselves for the future.
St. Scholastica Student Body President Andrew Bailey says the Duluth Area Leadership Conference was a big success in its first year.
“We really hope that they’ll continue the conversation with their peers they met at the conference, as well as continue leadership development because we know that you’re just not a leader. It’s something that you continue to do and continue to grow into a role,” Bailey said.
There were 16 students who participated in this year’s event.
